|The Politician by H.L. Mencken - Roy Trumbull|
I had only several members of my family with literary backgrounds and one was Lois Rather, a cousin from my parent's generation. She was a retired teacher and an accomplished writer. She and her husband Cliff ran the Rather Press which did limited print runs using a letter press. During one vist she suggested that I might like H.L Mencken. I always took such suggestions from Lois seriously. I picked up a few collections of his essays at a used book store and found she was right...

|War, Peace, and the State - Murray N. Rothbard|
Murray N. Rothbard's classic essay on the subject of war from a Libertarian perspective. There is not a very good copy of it anywhere on the internet (except at Mises.org), so I pulled the text into a word processor, and reworked the fonts and footnotes. This pdf version is optimized for viewing on an iPad or other mobile reading device.

|Biography in Sound - WA4CZD|
Biography in Sound was an hour-long documentary radio program that was produced and broadcast in the 1950s. It's one of the best examples of radio excellence - the production is exemplary and I find every episode to be compelling. It's one of my favorites; I don't understand why it isn't more well known! Each episode featured multiple guests, who often were peers or friends of the person who was the featured subject...
